1 Barton, William Bon Bellboy Lover and Hobo (An Autobiography)
New York Vantage Press (c.1972) 0-533-00481-0 / 9780533004812 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj 
[spine slightly turned, mild shelfwear, bottom corners lightly bumped, small bookstore sticker on ffep; jacket has small chip out at top of spine, mild soiling to rear panel, slight edgewear]. "The autobiography of a man who was orphaned by the Great San Francisco earthquake. Born in 1900, [the author] grew up to become a bellboy in many elegant West Coast hotels, a sometime hobo who rode the rails throughout much of the country, an inveterate lover of horses and a lover of many women ... he writes of these and other events fondly, in a simple prose style that presents his recollections vividly but without undue nostalgia." [And there really is no comma after the first word of the title -- so I can only clude that the author must have thought of himself as the "Bellboy Lover."]
